Striker Jordy Hiwula was pleased to have got off the mark in the league with two goals in Tuesday night’s 3-2 win against Bury.

Hiwula – who is on loan from Premier League side Huddersfield – had scored in the Checkatrade Trophy against Leicester City under 21’s, but got his first league goals against the Shakers.

The 22-year-old missed a penalty earlier in the game, but quickly put that behind him to score his first goals of the season in the dramatic 3-2 victory.

“It was a crazy game when we were out there,” added Hiwula.

“The weather wasn’t great, but it was good that we got the three points tonight.

“I am really pleased to get off the mark in the league and hopefully I can get a few more. I am disappointed about missing the penalty but I thought I played well and so did the team.”

Jermaine Beckford had a golden opportunity to give Bury a point but from the same penalty spot as Hiwula, but he fired over; which was a relief for the Cod Army faithful.

“They got a penalty in added on time but they blazed it over,” added Hiwula.

“Both of us [Beckford] put it over, but it wasn’t to be today for us both but like I said; I am happy we got the three points.

“Playing every 3 or 4 days is tough but this is something that the lads are use too. We as players just need to get on with it. It is a long way down to Portsmouth but we need to go there and get all 3 points.”
